I want to make a recipe (Enchilada Sauce) and it calls for tomato purée.  I've never seen this in stores before.  Can I just make it at home some how?  Maybe blend up a can of diced tomatoes or use a can of crushed?  Anyone have an idea what would work?

yes, just puree your can of diced or crushed tomatoes in a food processor or blender. The puree give the sauce a nice smooth consistency.

Tomato puree is between tomato sauce and tomato paste.  You might try cooking down some tomato sauce or adding a little water to tomato paste.
